Safe model - More gold, less silver?

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I got a safe delivered and it was the wrong one. (I only discovered that today.) It has a similar model number and almost the same price as the one I actually ordered and the same security grading. However, it has less volume, internally. The reason is that the walls are thicker. The outside dimensions are the same. This means, with this safe, I could not buy as much silver as I wanted. However, I'm unlikely to ever make if completly full if I only buy gold (and still some silver but less than planned), from now on.

On one hand I like it that it has thicker walls. But on the other hand I would like to buy more silver. What would you do? Buying less silver (and more gold) and keep the thicker safe walls? Or have it replaced with the correct model?

You can sew gold into various quilts or a pieces of clothing/furniture etc, or anything of no consequence to a thief. Not possible with silver of equal value. With silver, think big and use paint or wrapping.

Then it gets forgotten, you die, and someone discovers them decades when pulling down the curtains and removing the "weights" (actually happened if you weren't aware).

Reminds me of an episode of lovejoy when all those coins were used as weights in the curtains...lol.
